XMAS SHOUT OUT

Since it is coming up to Xmas, and since I have a WP going live I thought I'd take a moment to thank my editor sploofinder for his/her work all year.
This WP was no exception -- (s)he picked up a grievous error of fact I'd committed.

Thanks might not be enough -- but I'm planning to give a generous 25% pay increase.

I'm sure all the platinum members (platypuses?) who use editors for WPs would say the same.... any my one regret is we couldn't persuade the editors between us to publish my/Smaug's 'fart' puzzle!

Barry

Thank you Barry for starting this necessary thread to honor our editors.

I'll add my 'thank you' to my 'patient' editor Sploofernatural.
Coincidentally, I've authored the next word puzzle later today. Although this one took minimal editorial support from Sploofernatural, I usually can't count too well and require some shortening

I guess I'm PRETTY verbose.
My Christmas wish to Justin [Trivia Alchemist]?-- allow a few more characters to the word puzzle matrix. That might solve my problem

And here's another Christmas message for all.
MAY CHRISTMAS BE JOYOUS AND 2010 BE PROSPEROUS!
QUE PASEN UNA FELIZ NAVIDAD Y QUE TENGAN UN PROSPERO ANO 2010!

Personally, I do not think 25% is enough. Having the courage to confront Barry's very rare error, deserves an award. I am thinking of the Distinguished Royal Lion of Sploofus Citation earning him/her the title of GRAND EX-HALTED REDACTOR REVISER (grrr!).

I am sending 2010 allena points to each and every editor for their dedication during this trying year. May next year return to smoothness and quakelessness.

Hey, Barry, shouldn't that be Platypi?

You raise an interesting question; platypus is not a latin noun formed in the usual way -- the ..pus is from podos, the Greek for foot.
So I dont think I'd expect a ...pi ending although Webster lists it as a second choice. (I realize this means very little since Websters is merely a list of words not a proper dictionary but....)
Chambers lists only platypuses.

I don't know, Barry. When I taught middle school, as the last bus pulled in to pick up my students, I would tell them, "bi!"

Thanks Barry! I'm looking forward to all the ways I can use my wage increase. And having titles after our names is pretty cool too. Hope all who celebrate Christmas have a magical day.

Sploofinder, GRRR, GOSH
